I inked the stamp (Flourishes - Spring Has Sprung clear set) with Memento brown ink, and watercolored it downstairs where it was a bit....a little bit....cooler.
I stamped the sentiment (from the same set), die cut the image piece with my oval die, backed with the oval scalloped die.
The blue mulberry paper was from my stash. I just finished cleaning, purging, sorting, reorganizing my craft room, and found several items I hadn't used in quite some time. My stash of mulberry papers just called to me. I used to use it all the time. I love the way it creates the perfect background. I will be using it more now that it has come out of hiding. I love tearing the edges to give it a feathery, light look.
